The capitalist agenda at work!

Spoken like a true bourgeois master!

Not necessarily true. If you work smart or invest money you already have, you can make more money without working hard.

Not all Duolingo sentences are supposed to be necessarily true. This is something more like what your boss would say.

What's the difference between the devas 'have' and the havi 'have'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AlbertNguy8

devas = have to do something, must do something. havas = possess, own

Interesting here how its pli da mono. Its like the latin construct, plus (indeclinable) + genetive. more of ___. E.g. plus vini, more of the wine.
